Lifetime Montrose resident, Evelyn Schmidt, passed away at Valley Manor on February 17, 2017. Evelyn was born in Montrose to Abner and Anna Flowers. Evelyn grew up in the Uncompahgre Valley with nine brothers and sisters. Evelyn married George Briggs in 1946, and had three daughters. She later married Jake Schmidt in 1964, who proceeded her in death in 1984. Evelyn worked as a dental assistant for Dr. Burtis and then went to work at City Market, and stayed there until she retired. She really never retired. She began cleaning houses for people, then it turned into taking care of people. She was always there for everyone, an angel to all. Mom loved to walk, go camping, fishing, and playing cards. Most of all she loved spending time with her daughters and grandchildren.

Evelyn is survived by two daughters, Nora (Cisco) Martinez, Cindy (Dave) Johnson; six grandchildren, Michelle Martinez, Lisa Martinez, Elisa Kaiser, Dustin Johnson, Julie Brost, and Jason Pauley; 12 great grandchildren; and 5 great – great grandchildren. She is also survived by one sister Luella Bellagardt; two brothers Vernon Flowers, and Larry Flowers; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents Abner and Anna Flowers, her husband Jake Schmidt, and her daughter Sharon Pauley. She will be dearly missed by all, but never forgotten.
